apologize for that. if you will, sir. >> sure, what i was saying is unfortunately, the obama administration has not made it a priority to prosecute felons who try to illegally purchase guns. in 2010, over 15,000 felons and funneltives tried to illegally purchase a gun an were turned down. out of those 15,000, the obama justice department prosecuted just 44. let me repeat the numbers. 15,000 felons and funneltives illegally trying to purchase a gun, the obama justice department only prosecuted 44. i'm introducing legislation to create a task force in the department of justice. we need to prosecute violent felons and fugitives and we need to go after them to protect ourselves against violent crime. we shouldn't be stripping away the second amendment right to keep and bear arms of lawful, peaceful citizens. >> lou: senator reid, the majority lead, called for a cloture vote at 11:00 tomorrow morning. you and a number of your colleagues also said you would filibuster should the need arise. is your sense that the need will arise? are you still committed to a filibuster of gun control legislation?
